This party was too cute for words! I love all of the darling hearts, garlands and the color scheme used throughout! School isn’t the only place kids can enjoy a Valentine’s Day party. With these simple ideas, you can host a fun party for your little ones and their friends right at home.
This party is perfect for Valentine’s Day or just to say “I Love You”!
DIY Hanging Heart Garland
I’m not going to lie…our heart garland took an extreme amount of cutting to put together. Did I mention that this garland is double sided? Good thing the kids are good at cutting out hearts. Just to prove it, have you seen the heart animals they made. Adorable!
To make your own, you will need to:
- We cut out a huge pile of hearts in various sizes
- Use painters tape to attach red string to the ceiling. I love that the painters tape is blue, so it worked perfectly with our color scheme. We cut hearts out of painters tape to add a decorative touch.
- Tape/glue the hearts to the string. We glued a small heart inside each larger one.
- Sit back and admire your work, you know everyone at the party will be!
Cardboard Heart Decorations
We created a number of cardboard hearts in 2 sizes (one large, one small). The kids then used the same process as they used on our cardboard apple trees and our spring ladybugs. They peeled, painted and glued the hearts together. A simple string loop was hot glued to the back of each heart so that we could hang them.
We used 2 old french doors (minus the glass) to hang our cardboard hearts on. We flanked the buffet with the doors, and it looked stunning. Plus it was basically free, love that!
DIY Paper Heart Chandelier
The kids were able to create this beautiful chandelier in just a few moments. Check out this simple heart garland tutorial! Seriously, it is so quick and easy to make.
We hung more paper heart garlands through the house. Between the archways, over the mirror and accenting the buffet table.
Since this was a Valentine’s Crafting Party, we needed a way to organized our craft supplies. I love our simple/cheap solution…upcycling simple tin cans covered in paper. Yep straight from our recycle bin. Love that!
Tissue Paper Vase
The kids had a blast making these simple Valentine’s Tissue Paper Vases. The kids covered Starbucks Coffee Bottles with modge podge, tissue paper and glitter. I think the glitter station was their favorite part.
We used lids from peanut butter jars to contain the mode lodge. It worked great since they were blue and red, but also the perfect size for sharing with a friend.
